Customer Question
The reverse lights work on...
The reverse lights work on driver and passenger side and the blinkers do too, but the brake light and tail light on the passenger side tail light assembly neither one work. The bulb is good and so is the fuse. What are some possible problems

Hello and welcome to just answer. I have seen issues with the lamp housing assembly on these vans. It is a broken contact in the unit itself. Do you have a 12 volt test light handy?

If you do have a 12 volt test light, then ground the light's alligator clip to a good metal ground point on the van's body. Then turn on the left turn signal. Now probe each terminal in that connector at the lamp unit. If the test light blinks, then that proves the lamp unit/housing is bad and will need to be replaced.

pretty much if any terminal on the right side lamp housing shows it's getting voltage by blinking when the left side blinker is on, then it means there is a broken terminal in the housing? Remember, both left side and right side blinkers work fine and so do both reverse lights. It's just the right side(passenger) brake/tail light that won't work. How sure would you say you are that it's the lamp housing that is bad? Is out possible that it could be a bad ground or maybe a relay? Can my wife somehow rig it up just for now? Chris i need you to help make me look good in front of the ol lady. Lol. She thinks I'm looking at the wiring diagram and she's waiting on my call! Can you make me look smart? What can i do on the spot? Thanx

Oh and I'm not sure about the test light bit it is actually a possibility. If not tho, any other suggestions?
Chrysler Mechanic: Chris, Technician replied 2 years ago

Oh ok, Sorry. It it is the right side stop and tail lamp. So do your test light check on the right side wires while stepping on the brake and/or turning on the tail lamps. If the light lights, then replace that lamp housing assembly. You can get a cheap test light at the auto parts store for under $10.00. If it were a relay, then the left side would not work. If it were a bad ground, then the right turn signal would not work.

I hope that helps,

Chris

Did you see the pics I sent? Could it be a broken terminal connection in the wiring harness plug that plugs into the lamp housing itself?

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
